I won’t have as many opportunities in the garage in the coming months because I’m currently at sea filming an exciting documentary!
“Bramble Reborn” is an exciting documentary about the adventures of the crew of “USCGC Bramble”, a restored Coast Guard Cutter now owned by civilian adventurer and entrepreneur Tom Clarke. Featuring exotic (and often dangerous) locations, riveting dive expeditions, and fascinating historical facts, this film takes viewers on an epic journey from the sparkling blue seas of the Caribbean to the treacherous waters of the Northwest Passage.

Here’s a short film I made showing how I did the special effects for my friend’s film. All of this was done using Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, and various still images. We shot this at night in extreme cold. You can see Paul’s breath in several shots. The location was his friend’s stable in the Crystal Beach area. We couldn’t have a live horse in the shot as they were all outside. We didn’t have a lit oil lamp either so I added the flame with an effect. Enjoy…

This is a short Western film I made for my actor friend Paul Lewis. Note the special effects including the opening rain shot, horse, candle flicker, and last shot (grave in the rain).
